Weekly Round-Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and that I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget that if you have written a post that you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Starting off this week with another super post from Carolyn on how much is too much, or conversely not enough when it comes to discussing our health struggles.

Terri writes about her dismay at what has been happening in the world of access to care and choice in breast reconstruction and how it has “shattered many of us in this community.” It’s also the topic of Jennifer‘s latest post.

A question from Barbara this week, “what is living a life with honor with breast cancer?”

A provocative post from Abigail on the nature of “comparative suffering.”

Shine Cancer Support’s latest podcast looks at the mental health impact of cancer on young people.

A lovely reflection from Lisa on the “generosity of January”.

Rod shares 10 myths and facts about male breast cancer on the SBC blog.

Finally this week, if you’re looking to do more with social media this year to raise your advocacy profile, I’ve published a month-by month guide to elevating online presence on the Patient Empowerment Guide. You can read it here.

Until next week

Yours with much love always
